Date night at home? Yes, please. With our crazy schedules, sometimes it’s hard to have a date night. We both work full time and getting dinner together sometimes presents a challenge. I found the perfect meal solution with MorningStar Farms® Veggie Bowls. Easy to fix, bold fresh flavors and a few candles made this an awesome date night at home.
You know how it is. Busy work days sometimes makes relaxation mandatory. And, I want to spend time with Hubby and not have to worry about dinner. It can be easy to rush through dinner after a long work day, but there are days I want to have a nice glass of wine and a flavorful dinner that’s short on prep time.
So I sped on over to my local Walmart to pick up dinner. It had been a long day for both of us and I wanted a simple meal solution while still having something tasty. I found it in the frozen food section. MorningStar Farms® Veggie Bowls. Yes, this was it. The Veggie Bowls can be found at Walmart with the Healthy Entrees.
For our date night, the set up was super simple. First, I opened a bottle of red to allow it to breathe.
Then, I lit my LED candles. We don’t do open flame candles since we have lots of pets. The LED’s are just as romantic.
Finally, I set the table up as if we were in a fine restaurant; cloth napkins, pretty placemat and nicer plates then we use daily. I wanted to make this super special.
For our date night, I chose MorningStar Farms Chick’n Tikka Masala. We love Indian inspired dishes so I knew this one would be a hit with Hubby. He is a carnivore almost to the extreme and I really want us to eat healthier and this includes “meatless” dinners. MorningStar Farms delivered with this meal. They solved my dilemma of a quick and delicious dinner full of robust flavor and convenience.
The Chik’n Tikka Masala enhanced our date night. Rather then spending hours in the kitchen, this whipped up quick and allowed Hubby and I to spend more time with each other relaxing after a long day at work.
So what are my tips for a perfect date night?
- Set the mood. Think candles, soft lighting, mood music. Set the scene for a romantic time
- Pop the cork. A nice bottle of wine will make this dinner feel special. Sparkling cider works too
- Cloth napkins and placemats. Get the feel of a fine dining restaurant.
- Store the electronics. Phones go in a cupboard or, better yet, another room. TV is turned off.
- Avoid throwing on sweats or jammies. Stay a little dressed up. It makes it fun!
Meatless Monday’s (or meatless any day) is not just for vegetarians. They are for everyone. And with our busy workweek schedules, this fit right in. And you don’t have to do anything special. This veggie bowl was perfect as is. Veggie Bowls are made with Chik’n Strips, Steak Strips and Veggie Sausage Crumbles™. The Chik’n strips in our meal has 23g of protein at 150 calories.
So go check out MorningStar Farms Veggie Bowls for yourself and celebrate date night at home with your honey. Which veggie bowl would you choose?
